Standard treatment for obstructive sleep apnea has been the use of a breathing machine called a CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) machine.
However, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine now recommends oral appliances as a first line treatment option for patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who either prefer it to CPAP or are unable to successfully use CPAP.
Our doctors have undergone extensive training in the area of sleep disordered breathing and proper treatment with oral appliances.
Oral Appliance Therapy for OSA works by repositioning your lower jaw while you sleep so that your airway remains open and apneas are prevented. The result is a drastic decrease or elimination of snoring and more restful, restorative sleep. Subsequently, your risks for other related health problems are improved.
An oral appliance can also be used to treat snoring even if you do not have Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
